  • Description


    Dear travellers we are a berber family of two brothers and cousin who live together in a desert camp which is few minutes walking for the town of Mhamid El ghizlane.
    Here there is no difference between us and our volunteers because we are one family .
    So we are here because we would like to have volunteers to help us with our camp, in exchange we will be happy to show you our life style as nomads, culture and if you have any experience with natural constructions, making mud bricks, farming we will be happy to get any kind of help from you because we believe this is the best website to receive people from all over the world to her help, experience and learn so much from them.

    For the people who like to enjoy any kind of our desert activities like desert camping with camping, sandbaoring, 4wd desert tours we will be happy to organize this for you.

    We don't have any paid staff at the camping that are helping us because we do the work by ourselves.
    For any questions about what we do or how to get here please feel free to contact us.

    Looking forward meeting you!!
